MD Pellets are slow-release pellets that sink down into the muck to deliver essential bio-stimulants and indigenous bacteria. They penetrate and degrade pond muck by stimulating naturally occurring bacteria and adding sludge-eating cultures.
The pellets are a dense product designed to be “tossed in” and sink to the bottom. When they sink into the muck the bacteria produce enzymes that speed up the breakdown of organic waste. Some customers have expressed success breaking down sycamore leaf debris in their lakes and ponds using our MD Pellets. They contain safe and beneficial bacteria, and will not harm aquatic species, fish, waterfowl, or people. This product will also reduce sulfide and mercaptan odors found in muck.
MD Pellets Applications:
Lakes: MD Pellets can be distributed into a lake by a fertilizer spreader attached to the back of the boat. MD Pellets are typically 1/10th to 1/20th of the cost of dredging.
Decorative Ponds: MD Pellets are a nice way to keep the pond in check and keep muck to a minimum.
Retention Ponds: Retention ponds start out nice and beautiful and after a few years they become loaded with floating organic matter and muck. MD Pellets are an easy way to help balance them out and reduce muck. These pellets will also work well in retention ponds that may have a lot of road salt. A biologically cleaned pond is a happy pond. A mechanically cleaned pond can often be unhappy for some time as it tries to find biological balance.
Golf Courses: Golf courses can get a lot of muck due to runoff, high nutrient loadings, and leaf and grass waste. MD Pellets are an easy and affordable way to keep golf course ponds free of muck and more importantly to help keep them biologically balanced.
Shorelines: Used by homeowners to reduce muck around the shoreline. Just sprinkle some pellets around a dock once a month and let them sink into the muck. Month by month the lake bottom will clean up. Many customers have called them little vacuum cleaners as they see the muck reduce.
Aquaculture: Used to degrade fish poop that accumulates in the bottom of a pond. MD Pellets have proven to be economical and efficient for fish farmers who want to minimize muck accumulation as an alternative to dredging.
